Lol, Well.

I'm currently a 2nd year in Montgomery College, doing a 2 year CC and 2 year uni. thing since I got a full ride trust fund for it, lucky me. Doing a dual major in Electrical Engineering and Software Engineering along with a math minor/English minor/Computer Graphics minor.

Best advise about calculus? Don't listen to the teacher, read the book, I only showed up to class to turn in my homework and take tests/quizes, passed it with a 91. Easiest class ever... though I will say math has always been my strong point. English owns me though


Calculus is my type. One should take time to understand it. Unlike you, i'm always around during classes, and granted exemptions for the finals.

Calculus is useless, it only proves there is a 0 and there is no practical use for it in real life.

incorrect. You also learn that in Applied Maths.

Well that's what I learned out of Calculus and I haven't taken applied math yet.

Calculus is useless? Better tell that to all the Physicists, Architects, Economists and the entire Aviation Industry!

Hmmm since it's been bumped I'll address the OP. As to why I'm starting college so late, I took a break for several years to do the whole military thing. I had fun, but it's time to pursue an education now. I also received some valuable electronics experience there (F-15 Avionics), allowing me to jump into a technology orientation with greater ease.

I'm attending Purdue University right now and am in the Electrical Computer Engineering Technology major. It's basically like an electrical engineering degree with a greater emphasis on hands on electronics and practical applications where as regular EE has more theory and physics.

Starting my second year, I'll be diving into chinese as well. I don't know if I'll be pursueing a degree of any kind in chinese, bu I intend to take at least 3 years of it. I also intend to take some international business and supply chain management type classes.

My goal is to fill a hole in the rapidly growing global economy, speciffically with China. My logic is that is a huge market that is only just beging to be tapped so job security won't be as significant an issue. There are plenty of tecnology people, and there are plenty of business people who speak chinese, but they're really aren't many people right now capable of doing both. I've talked to several people in industry who've strongly encouraged me on this wrote and said that if I complete everything I'll be able to name my price. I've also already been offered some internships as early as this coming summer, including one just outside of shanghai. I'll probably take it (since the experience is worth its weight in platinum), but I'm a little nervous since I have taken any chinese yet .

As much as I'd love to learn japanese, their economy is crap right now and it's not an economically viable language to learn. I may start to learn some later on to greater diversify myself, as well as because I'm so into japanese pop culture (and japanese has some similarities to chinese, especially kanji).

I find no use for it and I'm studying to be a mechanical engineer.

Exactly, you are studying to be a mechanical engineer, when you finish and become one come back and tell me calculus is useless.

Oh fine so I need to find velocity and such but you don't need calculus for that.

Let's just say I don't need to study engineering but that does not mean I find it useless.
And let's leave at that because is a bit off-topic
